"Kids—You Can't Beat 'em."

“Kids-You can’t beat ‘em”, was one of the first logos in 1983, when President Reagan proclaimed April to be the first National Child Abuse Prevention Month. I love the dual meaning of this statement. We can’t be physically aggressive with kids. But equally as important, is the message that there is special value in children. Thirty years later, we continue to promote the value of our children and their families, as well as the fact that every member of the community has a responsibility to…

When Push Comes To Shove...

I had an interesting morning this week with my 2-year old, Presley.  We follow a pretty regular morning schedule with afternoons being more off-the-cuff.  Wednesday started like any other typical morning, wake up, have breakfast and head to the gym.   Presley will spend an hour in the daycare with the other kids and I work out (well, what is now a very pathetic version of my workout, but we are still moving in some form or another. :). I love it. It’s a win win for both Presley and I.  She…

The Tacky Box Can Help Parents Take Charge of A Potty Mouth or Stop Kids Saying Hurtful Things

Have you ever slipped and said a tacky word in front of your child?  I know that I am guilty of this of accidentally saying something I will regret later or said something that wasn't appropriate for my children to hear.  I have always tried to be aware and watch what I say and do in front of them.  I want to make sure that my kids aren't picking up bad habits.  Believe it or…

Sink to a New Low

I cannot be the only one...whose child's behavior, or lack thereof, has an uncanny ability to make you lower yourself to a level of response that you are ashamed of later (or in my case, immediately).  A child can bring out your childlike happy go-lucky side or a petty not-so-nice side that has been hibernating within your psyche since junior high school.

I have adapted to my surroundings as a Mama, my aptness at tuning out whining or just general six year old blabbering could…

The Importance of Fathers in Their Children’s Lives

If you knew there was one thing our nation could do to improve every area of a child’s development, would you be in support of that one thing? Research shows children that have involvement from both a father and mother perform better in all developmental areas. Children need their fathers to be involved. For far too long, our country has seen fathers at best as an add-on to what mothers provide for children and in some cases fatherhood has been discounted altogether.

Families First,…

Adults Behaving Badly

Unknown

Unfortunately, we hear on the news all the time about parents full-out losing their shit on the sidelines of their kids' sporting events.  A bad call can somehow turn supposed "adults" into the biggest meatheads on the planet.  It's both despicable and embarrassing. And I thought I'd seen some pretty horrific behavior…

Miley Cyrus VMA Performance is Inappropriate For Prime Time Television When Children Are Likely Watching TV

Miley Cyrus Seeks The Wrong Attention

I didn’t get a chance to watch the VMA award shows on T.V. a few nights ago but I have seen clips of Miley Cyrus’s big performance.  As a mom, I am outraged and feel as if this type of content shouldn’t be on prime time television.  After all, many families…

How to Make Time Out an Effective Way to Modify Your Child’s Unwanted Behaviors

My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare.  He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night.  Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…

Birthday Craziness

     L's friend R had her 5th birthday today.  Both girls were invited to the party.   Before the party took SB  out to sell her girl scout cookies.  Sold 6 boxes in an hour.   Not too good of a sales day for a Saturday.   Last house we stopped at ended up being a girl scout leader.    We were informed in polite terms that we were trespassing on another's territory.   To my way of thinking if a girl hasn't gone out and sold in her territory halfway through the cookie sale then watch out.  …

Solve Your Child’s Behavioral Problems

Every parent has a different way of parenting their children.  There is no right or wrong way; however, many parents find that they have to tailor their parenting styles depending how their children respond to our guidance.  Every child learns differently, so what may work for one family or child might not work for another.  As a parent with multiple children, you may find yourself frazzled and stressed out because what is working for one child isn’t working on another.  Read more…

How to Treat Mommy in an Emergency

It was Saturday morning, so after a long, stressful week I was looking forward to taking a run around the block. By "run" I mean "mostly walk," but I managed to break into a slow jog a couple of times along the way. (I'm not much of a runner. My theory is that my ancestors were royalty from England, so it is not in my blood to be active or athletic in any way. But I occasionally attempt some sort of physical activity in order to avoid dropping dead of a laziness-induced heart… Continue

Things That Make You Go "Hmmm"

Nothing really surprises me when it comes to my kids, but I seriously don't know what possesses them to do some of the crazy, stupid things they do.  And sometimes, it's really really hard to be the parent and not laugh at those crazy, stupid things.  (Cause let's be honest, some of them are pretty freaking hysterical!)  The latest thing that made me go hmmm?  My son decided…

The Honk Off

I swear my husband gets his jollies by trying to embarrass the crap out of me.  He's always enjoyed putting the car windows down and driving around our neighborhood with the radio blaring full blast.  And believe me, I've seen many an eye roll from our fellow neighbors whenever we go thumping by.  It makes me wanna slump down in the seat and pretend like I'm not really there, even…

Act Like An Adult, Not Like An Idiot

If you have a kid in any kind of organized sport, then you've most likely witnessed some pretty awful sportsmanship at one time or another.  It's bad enough when it's another kid displaying the rotten behavior, but when it's an adult?  Well, that's just the lowest of the low.  And this past weekend I had the misfortune of observing THE most jack asinine…

Maybe My Parents Knew What They Were Doing

Remember when you were growing up and you said you'd never ever do to your own children the things your parents did to you?  Perhaps it was a vow you made to yourself in the midst of snot and tears as you slammed the door of your room so hard that it nearly shattered the windows?  Well, my sixteen-year-old self would probably punch me in the face for doing so, but here's me admitting…

The Breakfast Buzz Kills



Do you ever wanna just walk away from your kids in public and act like you don't know who the hell they are?  No?  Surely that's not just me.  Call me Mommy Dearest if you will, but when my kids have a brain fart and act like complete Neanderthals who've never heard of manners, I sometimes think it would be easier to point and stare and pretend like I'm disgusted by the horrible excuse…
